Battery Switch Failure

Recommended Posts

OLDGUY

I installed an add a battery kit. It worked fine but now it everything stays on even when you switch to off. Any ideas?

Well...if it worked fine before, and now does not, it would seem the switch has failed mechanically.  Take a look behind it.  Might be as simple as a bolt/nut coming loose and can be repaired.  Or might need to be replaced.  Same effort required to tun the knob as when it was working?

There should be a distinct detent at all thre positions. Does it feel like the switch is mechanically clicking into those detents? Could be a lose, stripped or broken knob.

It still locks in each position. Maybe the contact inside broke. I will take it out and check next weekend. Thks.

Buy the way I have four large batteries hooked to it. It says maximum 350 amps.

The number of batteries only dictates the number of Ah in reserve. The actual electrical loads are what matters. Blue see typically gives a peak and continuous A draw. Battery switch failures are rare, especially for a blue sea. They are well built and solid. So not impossible but rare.
